Single Status Update
I often get asked by people who seek to upgrade their PC that they need a PC "just for browsing and e-mail". Now, if this was 1996 or even 2000, that would indeed be a trivial requirement. Browsing? Sure, it's all just pure HTML, browsed one page at a time. E-mail? Sure, it's just a dumb e-mail client.
My point is, that browsing has evolved into a deceivingly requirements-heavy endeavour, and a "PC that's good for general-purpose Internet browsing" needs actually to be quite beefy, unless you're an atavist that still uses lynx and w3m, and PINE for e-mail. Thoughts?

Why is this in Doom General?
Because Maes is forbidden from viewing or posting in Everything Else, aka Ultra Progressive World.
Like, where did we go wrong?
My guess is dumb old people in the upper brass of companies trying to keep on top of things, implementing stuff they heard was cool but don't really understand.
I think you should have posted this in Blogs.
That was my intention, so imagine my surprise when I left my PC, came back, and didn't find it there. No idea where I fucked up O_o
Well, I guess that, mods, please, pretty please, can you move it to Blogs? Thank you.
I was prompted to post this because I noticed that lately, Google Chrome, once heralded as the new, robust, lightweight etc. browser, the One that should bring Light and Salvation, has also degenerated to being shit-slow, and I mean even for things like scrolling windows, with the shittiness also creeping cross-platform.
